TRENTON, NJ — Race car driver Tim Buckwalter was on call. At any moment, he would have had to drop what he was doing and head back home.

Thankfully, for the Pennsylvania-based driver, the baby held off. And he was able to win the $5,000 East Coast Dirt Nationals at CURE Insurance Arena.

He previously won in a TQ Midget at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on January 29th, 2022.

Buckwalter was already entered into the A-Main feature race following his A-Qualifier win on Friday night. The Douglassville, Pennsylvania native, who was sponsored by 600cc Performance, TSL Shocks, and Dave Orange Racing Engines, began the A-Main from the eighth spot.

He got the lead in the race from Billy Pauch Jr. Once he got the lead, Buckwalter held on to large leads, even due to restarts late in the 50-lap feature.

Pauch Jr, like Buckwalter, qualified for the A-Main on Friday as he was a Top 3 driver in a qualifier race. The Frenchtown, New Jersey native started the A-Main from the fifth position.

The Hummer Motorsports driver, who was sponsored by Rodota Trucking, Lineman Motorsports, Hummies Landscaping, and Washington Collision Center, finished second in the race for the second time.

Adrianna Delliponti had the best showing of the event. The 18-year-old Norristown, Pennsylvania native was the first woman to qualify for the A-Main in the history of the event.
